Is America ready for NBC's Outsourced?
by w1ld at 12:27 pm EDT, Jul 29, 2010

Computerworld - NBC's fall season television lineup includes a new show called Outsourced, with a plot line aimed at the heart of workplace angst, the offshoring of jobs.

Outsourced sets its stage quickly. The main character, Todd, who is played by actor Ben Rappaport, has taken a job as a call center manager at Mid American Novelties but arrives, on his first day, to an empty office.

This isn't a Dateline special about outsourcing -- it's a comedy. Its workplace plot line may be familiar, particularly if you've seen the 2006 movie Outsourced, but it is nonetheless a show about outsourcing, and questions will abound.
